If I have a tunnel opened with this command

 ssh -f root@localhost -g -L 60000: -N

Which call of netstat do I have to use to see whether the tunnel is open or not?

I am working with Linux Red Hat.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Do you want to know if the tunnel is available, or whether there are any connections using it? – Barmar Mar 13 '13 at 16:10

netstat -anp | grep 60000.*ssh

should do the job.
